Interesting novel about the apparently missing Anna Durrant and the few people who are (reluctantly) in her life. Brookner spends a lot of time drawing out the characters and showing their evolution over a lifetime. I enjoyed this book. It's a pleasantly slow, contemplative novel for a rainy day.

"As Anita Brookner's masterful story unfolds, we realize that none
of the characters have been honest with one another or with themselves. To understand their connection to Anna's disturbing disappearance, they must first confront their own fraudulent behavior. What they discover is surprising and liberating, an unexpected contemporary response to the Jamesian dictum of Live all you can."
